Gerbera Daisies are the most charming of flowers and I especially love the powerful colour of red.
I took a whole load of images, experimenting with indoor photography and creating a soft box effect with a plastic plate of all things to diffuse the flash light. This particular image has been manipulated a fair amount with layers of blurring and textures as well as a flower half in picture cloned out in order, to achieve the desired look I was hoping to catch in the first place, but didn't achieve, hopefully giving it a more tidy appearance, nonetheless.
For Diane (Fefe) and anyone else interested in the Faery photos I mentioned last week, I have added a blog with the photos! You can view it here
